I love the Nero Wolfe books. Haven't read them in years. Must make a trip to the library. Had never seen nor heard an adaption, but I love Sidney Greenstreet!
So, thank you RV, for the link.

William Conrad also played Matt Dillon (!) on radio. My husband had fond memories of listening with his grandfather, so I gave him a set of cassette tapes. (Yeah, I'm prehistoric)

I like listening to the William Conrad ‘Gunsmoke’ radio shows online, he was a great Matt Dillon. He was hoping to play the character in the television series but was considered too overweight and short so the role went to James Arness.

Yeah Conrad was the original Matt Dillon. Both he & Raymond Burr were up for the TV version, and didn’t get it for the same reason.

Man, I wanted to BE Dan Conner (John Goodman) when I grew up! Ended up not too bad.

Oh, and I looked an awful lot like John Candy in college.
